GETTING THE RASPBERRY BED READY FOR SPRING

 

 

 

 

 

 

This morning I cleaned up a pile of Llama poop and wheeled it down to the new raspberry bed.  The nice thing about llama’s is that they just poop in one place so the clean-up is easy.  I added it to the hay from the sheep that I put down earlier in the year.  I will now add a layer of mulched hay and that should be it.  It will be ready to plant in the spring.

PERMACULTURE BLOG

I follow a blog about permaculture in Ireland and she mentioned John Seymour.

I bought his book “THE SELF SUFFICIENT GARDNER” in the late 70’s/  At the time I was struggling with a garden which used to be a driveway and was full of trap rock.  With his guidance I produced lots of great produce and even made maple syrup on a city lot in Holyoke, Mass.  All things are possible .  I recently found another book by John  called The Self Sufficient Life and was able to get it on Amazon.  It too holds many good ideas.

 

 

 

A MOONLIGHT NIGHT

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was out putting the hens to bed and saw the moon just coming over the mountain.  I love how it looks amongst the  trees.

Hope you have a wonderful evening and thank you for reading my blog.
